What is a hackathon? Read on to find out.
Hackathons (from a combination of words "hacker" and "marathon") are gaining popularity nowadays. This is a space where teams made of representatives of various sectors, from developers to marketing specialists, designers and niche specialists, gather.

Generally, a hackathon has a theme, which can be finance, climate, gaming, etc. Any hackathon's goal is to solve some practical problems in the respective field. Interestingly, today hackathons are held not only to find solutions through programming and software engineering (hence the word "hacker" in the name) but also for offline projects.

A distinctive feature of a hackathon is that the people who barely know each other work together, on a tight schedule, to solve the ideas that seem impossible at times, and in just a couple of days they come up with a solution and work out an implementation plan.
